These one-of-a-kind ceramic wares will add texture to your dining table
District 84 sells handmade ceramic Amaï pieces straight from Vietnam that’ll make your meals look even better
Nov 17, 2020
Tableware and other home and living items have become exceedingly popular as of late. There’s no shortage of Instagram stores selling beautifully crafted ceramics that’ll suit anyone’s tastes. If you’re looking for unique, minimalist additions to your china cabinet (or if you’re just starting out) District 84 is where you should start your search.
District 84 is an Instagram shop that sells imported Amaï ceramics from Vietnam. Amaï is a family-owned company that specializes in creating small batches of irregularly shaped ceramics that look perfectly imperfect.
Every piece is handmade which ensures that no two pieces are exactly alike. Another unique thing about these ceramics is that they’re only glazed on the inside of the piece, while the outside is left in its raw state. Although they may look fragile, these wares are impact resistant. They’re also microwavable and oven safe, so you don’t have to switch dishes when you’re cooking up a storm.

District 84 currently has six ceramic sets available on its virtual shelves. The macchiato set (P1,300) includes a cup, a spoon and a small plate. Their latte set (P1,300) comes with a cup, two small bowls and a spoon. The tiny set (P800 includes two small bowls, two spoons and a wooden tray. The egg set (P800) consists of a small bowl, an egg cup, a spoon and a wooden tray. The water set (P1,700) includes a carafe and a cup. Finally, their multi-colored party set (P1,500) comes with six tiny bowls and a wooden tray—which is perfect for serving dips or storing knickknacks.
All the sets, except for the party set, currently come in cream, light gray and charcoal. If you’re looking for larger pieces for your tablescape, District 84 also has preorders for plates and vases that come in other pastel colors (the lilac shade is especially stunning).
Aside from Amaï ceramics, District 84 also sells I Wish You assorted tea sets (P550). The individually packed, loose-leaf teas are 100 percent natural and sourced directly from Vietnamese farmers. Each set comes in 10ten flavors: ginger lemongrass, milk oolong, vanilla coconut, shan snow, jasmine Thai Nguyen, traditional green, summer peach, passion fruit, traditional black and mango coconut.
If you’d like to get a set (or six), you can place your orders through District 84’s Instagram. Happy holiday shopping!
